I can't make plans right now for next year but I will be following and hope I can jump on board. One reason is that I can't wait that long. I need a fix quick so I am heading down Dec 3.
I am not going to compare fishing on Acklins to fishing on Andros. I have never fished Andros. I do know that Andros is not the only place in the Bahamas where there are good sized bonefish. I have caught double digit fish on other out islands and seen them on Acklins. Some people like to hunt and catch fish on their own and I think Acklins is one of the best places in the Bahamas to do so.
You must not have read what Felton includes in his deal. Both lodging and food are included. He also provides transport to and from the airport as well as daily boat transport to some of the top flats on Acklins. So food is not an extra cost and you don't need a rental unless you choose to get one. You can also hire a guide if you would like.
